BACKGROUND There have been few reports that have analyzed the predictive factors for heart failure death, which is sub-divided into pump failure death and sudden cardiac death, in the long term. METHODS AND RESULTS We followed 186 consecutive patients with myocardial infarction (MI) and 115 consecutive patients with non-ischemic heart failure (NIHF) during 73+/-3 months. In the MI group, 26 died from pump failure and 12 died from sudden cardiac death. In the NIHF group, 21 died from pump… CONTINUE READING
